Festival Images

Well...these pictures are actually from the Sunday night jam session at our house. I didn't take any photos during the festival itself. I didn't even take these pictures. Lou Ann did. But I hope you enjoy seeing a few of the performers winding down after a weekend full of excitement and high energy.

    Yes, living large. What a wonderful weekend. Thanks to all that made it happen - especially Amy Howard.

  3. Now that's the way a porch should be used!

  4. I'd rather be in my office, talking on the phone to someone who doesn't like me -- or sticking a knitting needle in my eye.

    Why do you even bother reading this blog??

  6. "Why do you even bother reading this blog??"

    Because it gives welcome relief from the ills of modern life in places unlike Ocracoke, where one has to deal with TEDIOUS PEOPLE WHO COMPLETELY LACK A SENSE OF HUMOR, among other things.

  7. Clem -- I learned who wrote "Why do you even bother reading this blog?". It was a knee-jerk reaction...before she realized your comment was a joke. She really does love Ocracoke (as you do), and she really does have a sense of humor.

    Hope to see you on your next visit.

    Clem -- if someone has a sense of humor why does it need to be explained to her ??? I hope she is not on Island. HAHAHAHA
